'The most over-rated player on the planet' - Roy Keane rips into Arsenal and one star name in particular

Roy Keane
Roy Keane has accused Arsenal's players of being "a shambles" after their limped into the last-16 of the Europa League despite a 2-1 home defeat against Swedish minnows Ostersunds FK.
Arsenal progressed to the last-16 with a 4-2 aggregate win, but were jeered by the Emirates Stadium crowd after a limp performance that drew a predictably hostile response from ITV pundit Keane.
The former Manchester United captain rarely needs an initiation to rip into the Gunners and he didn't hold back as he was especially critical of their midfielder Jack Wilshere, who captained the side against Ostersunds.
"Arsenal are a great example of how not to start a game of football," declared the Republic of Ireland assistant manager. "They are so slow out of the blocks. Poor attitude, no energy, no desire. It's not like a light switch, you can't just turn it on and off.
"A lot of that will come from the manager and his coaching staff, but ultimately it has to come from the player. You have to motivate yourself. You have your pride and you want to do well for yourself, your team-mates, your family and to turn up like that was a shambles.
"We have seen it so many times from Arsenal. They went to Nottingham Forest (in the FA Cup last month) with exactly the same attitude and lost. You make excuses for Arsenal all the time, but it's a load of rubbish. The Arsenal players must drive you crazy. A shambles.
"You look for your senior players to lead by example…when Wilshere is your captain, to me, he is probably the most over-rated player on the planet."
Arsenal now head into Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City needing a big improvement in their performance, with a host of senior players set to come back into the team for the game at Wembley.
Keane was also critical of Celtic after their Europa League exit at Zenit St Petersburg, as he accused Brendan Rodgers men of "not turning up" and "lacking bravery" after a 3-0 away defeat cancelled out a 1-0 win at Celtic Park in the first leg.
"You are hoping Celtic can grind out a result to make the supporters proud, but they didn't do that," he added. "They needed to show courage. With 20 minutes to go and 3-0 down everyone wanted the ball...bluffers."
